stitches itching?

Does anyone else have stitches "down there" that are now itching and driving them nuts? I know it must be because the wound is healing, but it's driving me CRAZY! And how's this for annoying. I didn't have hemmrhoids this pregnancy or even after pushing abby out, but I'm a moron and let myself get constipated and BAM! Hemmrhoids showed up yesterday. I honestly think they are more painful than where I tore.

Oh man, my stitches were beyond itchy as they were healing and falling out. Once they were out, it was instant relief! As for the hemmoriod, I still have one from my older daughter, hemmriod cream made the pain and itch go away.

Yeah I got lazy since it's been such an easy recovery and haven't used that for a day or two. Good advice, I'll make sure to spray it next time.

ugh, I had tons of stitches with my first and they drive me nuts!

try tucks pads Smile the cooling of the pad helps the itch.
